Why Six Sundowns Players Will Miss Pre-Season

Mamelodi Sundowns are expected to report back for the club’s first ever pre-season in five years this coming Tuesday.

The other five players are Downs captain Hlompho Kekana, Tiyani Mabunda, Themba Zwane, Sibusiso Vilakazi and Lebo Maboe. Bafana are in Group D alongside Ivory Coast, Namibia and Morocco.
